A new AWR.TV video playlist
features seven videos that enable users to take a deep dive into the key features
in the V15 release of Cadence® AWR Design Environment® software. The V15 videos
- New and improved antenna measurements for peak power, including
direction, total power, and amount of power radiated in peak direction. Driving
circuitry in calculations can also be included.
- New electromagnetic (EM) features in the AWR® AXIEM® and Analyst™
simulators. AXIEM software offers improved meshing with fewer high-aspect ratio
facets (HARFs), a true DC solver for biasing that is 40X faster and sub nanometer
meshing for metal-insulator-metal (MIM) capacitors. Analyst software provides lumped
resistor, inductor, capacitor (RLC) elements, a distributed solver for Linux distributed
computer clusters and improved accuracy for lossy wave ports.
- New user environment (UE) features such as graphic enhancements,
including markers, legends, axes, disabling measurements and setting up optimization,
simplified layout features, including two-click select, polygon sizing by keyboard
entry, and multiple units for process design kits (PDKs), and improved 3D rendering.
- The new transmission line calculator TX-LINE integrated in
the V15 release.
- New capabilities of the network synthesis wizard, which enables
users to create two-port impedance matching and transformation circuits and offers
evolutionary optimization using vendor component libraries and foundry-authorized
- New system design capabilities in the V15 release of AWR® Visual
System Simulator™ (VSS) software, including amplifier model support for different
data file formats and interpolation/extrapolation of data sets between independent
variable values, as well as new digital predistortion algorithms, a new analog-to-digital
converter with digital and quantized outputs, new 5G New Radio (NR) library and
testbenches and RF improvements such as a filter bank model, diplexer model, image
rejection mixer and component damage measurement.
- Enhanced load-pull capabilities, including an expanded harmonic
balance tuner and updated script for performing load-pull analysis.
